The Cordova, AK based helicopter ski operation will begin by offering its trips throughout Chugach to those wanting to take advantage of their stockpiled Bitcoin.

Right now, PNH’s ‘Heli Week – Cordova’ goes for $5,975 which amounts to roughly .69 Bitcoin. 

Bitcoin’s rise over the past half-decade has been turbulent, controversial, and at some times electrifying. The crypto-currency is validated by blockchain technology, which allows Bitcoin transaction records to be retained and recorded securely.
